Egypt holidays hot for 2024

posted 14th September 2023 by Danica Wilson in Destinations

There’s good reason why we’re labelling Egypt as one of the top holiday destinations for 2024.

The country is synonymous with the legends of Pharaohs, the Great Pyramids, hieroglyphs and treasure-laden tombs.

There’s ancient monuments, timeless river vistas all along the Nile Valley and it’s no surprise it always features on travel lists, including Conde Naste’s list of best places to travel in 2023.

We’re carrying it over into 2024!

Scroll down to learn why we think Egypt holidays are hot in 2024.

#1st Reason Why Egypt Holidays are hot for 2024

Egypt’s new museum is fit for a pharaoh!

The signature project of the Egyptian government is a monumental undertaking that began over 20 years ago!  It was due to open but the Pandemic slowed down progress. This museum is already available to tourists with private ‘pre-opening’ tours available.

This museum is situated near the pyramids and there is a pedestrian walkway under construction that links the two. It will be longer than the Champs-Elysees or Rambla!

Inside you’ll find over 100,000 artefacts in 12 exhibition halls across 484,000 square feet of floor space. Phew!  Now that’s what we call epic!

Two exhibition halls are devoted entirely to Egypt’s most famous of pharaoh’s – none other than Tutankhamun.

#2nd Reason Why Egypt Holidays are hot for 2024

You can cruise the longest river in the world

The Nile is the world’s longest river and in Egypt, you can experience it for yourself. There are all types of cruises, from traditional felucca, dahabiya (a little more fancy than the felucca) or the luxury of larger lines.

Cruises vary in duration, but nothing beats 3 or 4 nights on the river, stopping along the way like a hop on hop off bus, but more stylish of course!

#3rd Reason Why Egypt Holidays are hot for 2024

Unique experiences

Egypt is famous for its ancient civilisation and the monuments of all the majestic pharaohs – the pyramids of Giza, the Great Sphinx and very soon the Grand Egyptian Museum.

What is less known is the world of unique experiences on offer.  Private dining on the banks of the Nile, hot air ballooning over Luxor are just a few to be savoured.

So when you’re thinking about Egypt – get excited by the pyramids but let us throw in those other unique experiences!
